Can't we have a look at those children and give them a chance? :)

Near Your Street

by tabnash24

You have those same hands,

which hang too from my shoulders.

You lay them to get hold of your phone,

but did you even know there's only few pennies that I own?

You've got the same feet,

which lies underneath.

Though with those you dance on the music of a disc

while I tap them when a car passes by with a beat.

You've got the same air that I breathe,

but I still don't know why my hair's not neat.

You've got great food to eat,

which consists of even meat.

But did you know I'm here starving under this heat?

You might not know about what I go through,

well why should you even bother?

After all I'm just a kid,

who lives and daydreams 'near your street.'

@bernardtwindwil That's so kind of you. Honestly, you remind me of grandpa so much, even he used to take five or six kids from his locality in every two weeks to amusement parks or any other places. He used to take at least one of his grandchildren on every tour, I think it was his way to keep us down to earth. Kinda miss mixing with those guys now.

You have provided us, not with a poem, but with a prod. You have prodded us to action. There are children with so little. Yes they are all around us. I live in a small rural town. They are here. I invite them to swim. I take them fishing. I teach them to play ball. That is all I have.
